Color does not matter it's all pretty much a personal preference. It's all about presentation, if the fish is hungry and you throw it in front of him, then he will eat it, if he's not hungry then he will not! It's all luck!
I agree that a big part is about presentation, but I don't agree that color does not matter. It may matters less when fish are actively feeding, but depending on the conditions it can make a difference. Location, weather, presentation, may play a bigger role in whether or not you catch something, but choosing the proper color can only help add to your chances. I fish mainly clearer waters. So if I buy colors I buy colors that match the forage of the lake or pond I fish. If it is topwater I always have white and black as well. However, if you see something that really gives you a lot of confidence in it then get that, because confidence is key and the more you have confidence in it the more you will keep it in the water not in your tacklebox.

My test was done from a low bridge in the same spot for a few days, at the same time.
The first day the combo c lector chose green as the main color. I threw a bomber in green craw and caught fish when no other color worked.
The second day any color worked, the reds, the greens and browns.
The next day it chose a red so i used a bomber in redapple craw and it also worked when no other color worked.
The next day it chose brown so i used the manns baby 1 in brown craw and none of the other colors worked at that time.
Another day again all the colors worked.
Quote Bill Dance; If the bass could see all the colors all the time there wouldn't be a minnow left in the water.
This tells me that color does matter to a point on a tough day of fishing. The fish are there and can't see your lure. It tells me to have an array of the same lure in different colors. Like the red's, the brown's, the green's and the chartruese. If you want to fine tune it get the citrus and the yellow/blues where possible.
BTW; Kevin Vam Dam has a combo c lector on his boat too for the tough days. He probably has the newer version by now.
So does color matter??? For me its the color, the size and the presentation too. But do not leave out the condition of the water too. Like Clear, slightly stained, stained, muddy its all here on how to fish all the different conditions.
Now did i learn anything about the color of my lures? Yup color does matter. Bigbill
Motivation is the key to success.....
Remember on a bad day just throw the lure you never tried yet.....
